Empower Youth expands reach of Fit Learning’s mission to transform educational practices and transform learning abilities of ALL children

In 1998, Fit Learning was founded by a couple of graduate students in Reno, Nevada…in a broom closet (seriously)! Today, Fit Learning has grown to help learners all over the globe by combining the science of learning with the art of teaching to provide results for children of all ages, abilities, labels, and challenges. 

Our practices are driven by our core values of effectiveness, nurturing, innovation, transformation, science, and FUN! With these values at the forefront, Fit Learning aims to transform the learning abilities of each and every learner that walks through our doors. We want to give them the tools to achieve greatness in their communities and beyond!

With locations in 20 states and across three countries, Fit Learning’s noble cause is as important as ever. 

At Fit Learning, our noble cause is to: 

Transform educational practices in the world so that all students have the opportunity to develop the kinds of expertise and skills that will allow them to do great things and make a difference in their communities and beyond. 

Not only are we focused on transforming every learner, but by doing so, we are working towards transforming the way the world views education as a whole. 

Today, Fit Learning is partnered with Empower Youth, a non-profit organization that aims to tackle inequity in education. Two of Fit Learning’s founders, Dr. Kendra Brooks Newsome and Dr. Donny Newsome, are Empower Youth board members. This collaboration enables us to help and reach even MORE learners than just those enrolled directly at Fit Learning. 

Empower Youth’s goal goes hand-in-hand with ours: to provide the same life-changing instruction that Fit Learning offers to children who would otherwise be unable to receive it. 

In as little as 40 hours, under-served learners can see a whole year of growth in one of our Fit Learning Programs, provided by Empower Youth:

  • Fit Reading
  • Fit Math
  • Fit Logic
  • Lil’ Fits (pre-k to 1st grade)

Through Fit Learning’s partnership, Empower Youth is able to help at-risk youth in northern Nevada, as well as active-duty military families, acquire and strengthen the kind of skills that will help them make a difference in their lives and the world around them.
